    April 16, 2020 - Decanted and consumed over 2 nights. Heady nose of black currant, wood spice and gravel. Maybe a little hot, the alcohol sticks out. Seamless palate, silky smooth texture, deep blackberry flavors and a slightly bitter finish that adds lift. Beautiful example of a modern Cabernet in a ripe rich vintage.

    January 7, 2020 - Outstanding. Still young. Enjoyed at Castello Picone with Kelly and the boys while watching a disappointing Bills playoff loss! Bad game, great wine!
